FAVE DEI MORTI

1.25 cups whole unblanched almonds
2/3 cup pine nuts
1.25 cups sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 egg whites
1/4 cup unsifted unbleached or all-purpose flour

Grind nuts, a few at a time, until they have a flour-like consistency.
In a bowl, mix the nuts with the sugar, baking powder and flour.
Stir in the egg whites with a heavy spoon, mixing until dough sticks
together.

Shape in teaspoon sized balls and flatten slightly on a greased
baking sheet; do not allow cookies to touch. With a teaspoon
handle, press in one edge of the cooky round to make a bean-like
indentation. Bake in a 190C/375F oven for 10 to 12 minutes or
until pale brown. Cool on wire racks; store airtight.

Makes about 5.5 dozen.

Fave dei morti literally means "beans of the dead" and are
traditionally eaten in Italy on All Souls Day, November 2.
